A fun, interesting layout

Greens were in great shape. Weather's been soggy so the course was, as you would expect, sis a bit oggy as well. Love the layout, can't just overpower every hole off the tee. Accuracy more valuable than distance.

Fully met expectations (c'mon, it's The Woodlands!)

Beautiful layout, nicely conditioned, very uncrowded, good price, what's not to like? Note that carts do not have any GPS capability - bring your own if you don't want to hunt for the sprinkler head yardages. Thanks for allowing non-resort golfers to play.

Panther magic

Needed a mowing but quite understood post all that rain that we had in last couple of days. The course is short, tough and well designed. If you stay at the resort it is a plus. You can’t go wrong with this course!

Great Experience

This was a great course and in really good shape. The course is not long, but it is a challenge off the tee. If you hit it well off the tee, you will have a chance to score. Range balls were included with the round though it is not specifically mentioned.

Wet, but very enjoyable

Two days of hard rain soften the course tremendously, but playing it was very enjoyable. I would love to play this course again with dry and normal conditions .

Great Course, Great Price, Great Time!!

The Panther Course at The Golf Trails of The Woodlands is a MUST play. My buddies and I came out for an early afternoon round, and we had a blast. The staff was very friendly when we walked in, the course was in great shape for fall golf, and the beverage cart girls took great care of us all day. Afternoon pace was good. We played in 4 hours and 10 minutes. It was a pretty busy day since the weather had just turned back to nice, but the marshals did a great job maintaining pace, and they were very friendly as well. We never had to wait on tee boxes, the pace just stayed steady. The greens were rolling really nice, and fairways and tee boxes are alive and well. I will definitely be coming back, and I would be ok with having to have paid more. But... I will take the deal where I can find them ;)

Fun, challenging course

Great course. It is a semi private course the opens up sometime on Golf Now. course is challenging but still can allow for the average player to shoot low. Overall probably one of the better courses for the money.

The course was in good shape except the bunkers. They need major work, however, it had been raining a lot in recent weeks.
